Weinberger, Matrullo, and Mescellany have had an enlightening discussion on blogging. Mescellany synthesizes best here. Their ideas are shedding some light as to what all this blogging is about and why we do it. It must be filling particular human needs of self expression and experimentation with self. I find these notions of textual, online avatars particularly intriguing since online gaming is feeding off the same human needs of simultaneously exposing our thoughts/emotions/morals, exploring the limits of our person, and trying on new "selves".
